Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-12-19 10:20:33 UTC

Remote exploitation of an integer overflow vulnerability in Clam AntiVirus' ClamAV, as included in various vendors' operating system distributions, allows attackers to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the affected process.

The vulnerability exists within the code responsible for parsing PE files packed with the MEW packer. During unpacking, two untrusted values are taken directly from the file without being validated. These values are later used in an arithmetic operation to calculate the size used to allocate a heap buffer. This calculation can overflow, resulting in a buffer of insufficient size being allocated. This later leads to arbitrary areas of memory being overwritten with attacker supplied data.

Andrej, is 0.92 ready for stabling?

Comment 6 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-12-19 23:29:41 UTC
There were further vulnerabilities fixed in this release:

    It was discovered that on off-by-one in the MS-ZIP decompression
    code may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

    fix bzlib bug (aCaB)   ???
    I am not sure about the contents of this yet.

<Ticho> well, both klamav and Mail::ClamAV use some clamav internal functions which shouldn't really be used outside of clamav, and those changed in this release

Ticho, can you please bump 0.91.2 with the attached patches? Thanks.
